So I've seen a few that say they have them, I would like you to post a pic of them installed and a little blurb about your experience with the company and the product.

For those that don't already know BWS coils are fortune auto coil overs with shortened shock bodies and swift springs for that extreme drop...

I want these so bad...

This may be a stupid question, but how high up can these go. Being low is nice, but lets say you had to raise up for the winter or some other profound reason. Can you achieve a ride height where you dont tuck tire?

Incorrect, they are different size spring that you can order. That red car I posted is a 5in springs lowered on the perch with 19s, you can raise the perch to left the car up 1-3inches from that. Or you can go with 6in springs which at there lowest hieght with out removing the perch are the hieght of the red car, you last option is to go with the 7in springs which with out removing the perch will not tuck.

see, i would figure everyone would just go with the 5" springs for max low.

I'm still deployed so no, but generally on any car that connects the sway end links to the struts is going to take about 2 hours at least.
